ok so i just pull off the h and the take off a nut?? and i have the adapter so i guess thats all i need is that and some steering wheel stuff? thx
Yes. To pull off the stock Honda wheel, pry off the "H" badge and undo the nut.
What type of wheel are you putting on, aftermarket or another Honda wheel?

aftermarket momo wheel
As has been explained before after you remove the stock Honda wheel you simply slide the Momo hub adapter on the steering column (make sure the wheels are pointing exactly straight).

There is a metal ring with wires on in that should have come with your hub adapter and those connect to the back of the horn button. You will of course cross those wires several times while installing the steering wheel scaring the **** out of yourself and annoying family and neighbors. After you slide the hub on and before you place the metal ring reinstall the 19mm nut that originally held your stock wheel in place. You really want to tighten this. I don't have any torque spec but I use a 1/2" breaker bar and really crank down on it. I had one come loose while I was autocrossing years ago...

After the nut and the ring simply place the new wheel on the hub and align it with the six holes. Insert you allen bolts and begin tightening them in a criss cross pattern. Force should be sufficient but not excessive here. Make sure the wheel pointing straight and if it is not loosen the main hub bolt and move the hub a spline or two in whatever direction to get it centered.

All you need do now is attach your horn button. The wire from the metal ring slides onto a tab on the back of the horn button. There are some plastic friction fit tabs that hold the horn button in and there is a metal ring around the circumference of the horn button that needs to make contact with the metal ring. Insert the horn button at a an angle and just work it down.

You should be done.

I hope I haven't been too verbose here and I think I have covered all the main points. Something like this is pretty routine for a lot of us but like many other things in life if you have never done it before AND are afraid of screwing it up I understand your confusion.

Pretty much the worse thing that can/will happen is you won't get the hub on straight the first time and you will have to redo it. Oh, and you will blow the horn. Several times.

Have fun,

Scott

If it didn't fit correctly I would not have "made" it fit.

I would have stuck the stock wheel back on for the time being and figureed out why the Momo wheel did not fit right.

i just want to say thank you for replying so in depth. i just recently purchased a 91HF that has a momo steering wheel on it with NO horn button. there is 1 black wire sticking out of the center of the wheel. i went out and bought a new horn, and a generic horn switch, then while experimenting w/wheel discovered a metal ring that is just dangling in space around the wheel behind the hub. when this ring touches the blinker turn off switch (not sure what it's called), the horn will go off, as do sparks. so my guess is i need to purchase the horn button and put that ring in the horn button? i'm better putting together things that i took apart. it's challenging finishing other peoples projects, as we all know. thanks for the info.

thanks for the link, i had seen that thread already.. my problem is trying to figure out what the guy did before me in regards to the horn, and if there should be two wires sticking out of the hub, or just one like in my car.. and if it should be only one wire, how can i figure out if it is connected to what it should be..

this is what my hub looks like..



does anyone know if this looks the way it should in regards to the wire? or how do set up a momo horn button to this? i thought it would be easy but i can't figure out if i am missing a wire, or if when i ground this wire the horn should go off..

thanks in advance
